Right Now: Free Concert in Astor Place Hosted by Joe’s Pub


What to do if you work downtown and need a lunch or coffee break anytime today:

Just around the corner from the Voice’s office, bands are playing all day today near the entrance to the downtown 6 train at Astor Place (by Starbucks). It’s all part of the Make Music New York festival, which, as we reported earlier, is in its fourth year of hosting outdoor free concerts throughout the five boroughs.

We happened to pass by Astor Place at about 12:30 pm while Shrive Alive was drawing a crowd of lunch-breakers. Really good music! So, grab a Frappuccino and enjoy some tunes. It’s the longest day of the year, you deserve a mid-day break!
